I have made a summer project of shooting sunsets from my cottage deck. This page is devoted to some of these shots. They're done simply for the pleasure of it, but I believe some people might find them of interest as well.

Muskoka Moonset #1ƒâ€˜ Ontario, 2000 (D)

One of the pleasures of my summer place onLake Muskokais that it faces west, and so almost every evening presents a sunset photography opportunity from my deck. Because of our high latitude, in early June sunsets are late and long. Here though there were only a few minutes to capture through a long lens this crescent moon setting behind a distant island.

Muskoka Sunset Panorama #1, 2000

I've always been frustrated by being limited in my ability to capture the span of this vista. Even a camera like theXPandoesn't give the right combination of reach and breadth. A wide angle lens alone would simply make the subject smaller.
